Injured Okoye doubtful for AZ clash


Super Eagles goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye, is a major doubt for Sparta Rotterdam’s Dutch Eredivisie clash against AZ Alkmaar on Sunday.

Okoye suffered a shoulder injury in Sparta Rotterdam’s 1-0 loss to Ajax last Sunday.

The 22-year-old was stretchered off in the 24th minute after colliding with Ajax striker Danilo.

While the injury was first feared to be severe, the new Watford signing allayed such fears.

“Sparta Rotterdam goalkeeper Maduka Okoye just informed us that his shoulder injury is not that bad. The keeper expects to be able to play against AZ again next Sunday. Okoye had to be sidelined against Ajax with pain,” Dutch online news hub Rijnmond Sport tweeted.

He might not however be fit for the Ajax game as the club are still assessing him and will not want to risk using him.

The Eagles defender has already signed a five-and-a-half-year deal with Watford.

The deal would however see him remain on loan at Sparta before joining the Hornets in the summer. (Punch)
